20-30% but if the service is horrible with very inattentive behaviour there will be no tip~

Depends on the service. Last year my mother, my daughter and I went to Red Robin for dinner one night. It wasn't all that busy at the time. There were 2 servers in the section we were in and 4 occupied tables. We ordered and it took 65 minutes to get our burgers. They were cold when we got them so we had to send them back. Took another 25 minutes. My daughter then wanted a simple dish of ice cream with chocolate sauce for desert. Thought that would be rather quick. Well, after 20 minutes we still hadn't gotten it and our server was nowhere to be found. A manager walked by and we called him over and told him we haven't seen our server in 20 minutes, since we ordered the ice cream and he went to check on it and she had left without even putting in our order for the ice cream. She was done at 7 oclock and it was now 7:30. needless to say, we paid the bill without waiting for the ice cream and we left no tip. Have not gone back there since. But last week I went to BRGR here right near my house and had a $18 bill and left her a $12 tip cause my server was outstanding. Few years ago was on vacation in Virginia Beach. Went to a fancy restaurant for dinner and 15 minutes after ordering we got my daughters food, but not mine or my mothers. The server says they have a special cook who does the childrens menu. And they always bring out the kids meals first so the adults can talk and enjoy the restaurant in peace. I said to the man, well what happens when the adult meals come? He asks what did I mean. I said I would rather eat my meal in peace and enjoy the meal I am paying 25 bucks for then have my kid hurry me and beg to leave cause she has been done eating for half an hour.

Depends on the service-I usually tip well, if they are good-and don't bug you every 2 min.-otherwise-it's not pretty!!!!!!

I had a sister and my mother who went through periods in their life where they were waitresses.. I know how hard they work. So as long as my coffee cup is kept full I tip 20%... and do so happily!

if their lucky they will get 3-4 dollars hr. plus tips. so the 20% tip is very much appreciated .

20%, more if the service is awesome, but NEVER less. That is their only source of income, what do you expect them to afford when you can only leave 5$ on 50$, and you shouldnt be out anyway if you cant afford it.
